Again, Toonerville's getting ready for some lucky owners. I believe that this is it. What you see is the last of the Toonerville's.
I am going to roll some Quicktime movies of this thing running so you all get an idea of how really interesting this thing is to watch.
I have a pictuer of Lyle Cain holding one of these on Antique Toy World. I'll scan it in.
Ok, now for my mildly psychotic tangent - this is why I really like standard gauge. The protoype for this is linked on my previous article and the model looks almost nothing like it. Who cares! I love the color, the sound, the crankyness of the train. I'm not worried about DCS or TMCC compatibility because it just doesn't matter, this thing runs with almost any power available on the planet. Some of my friend's kids can play video games until their eyes bleed but they're still riveted when I put this thing on my dirty and slightly bent track. And it runs like a top.
More on simplicity in another article. For now, imagine how amazing a whole Toonerville trainset would look.
